Dear Diary - by Shelly Bedsaul from Folk Art gallery

Dear Diary - by Shelly Bedsaul from Folk Art gallery: "Dear Diary - by Shelly Bedsaul from Folk Art gallery"
I really enjoyed this piece from an artist from Topeka, Kansas. What I really like about it is the details that
she used. She creates a warm feeling of a leisurely morning spent pouring your heart out in your diary and
simmering them with some tea. The lines and patterns keep it visually more interesting. Another thing that I
enjoy is the back story. Shelly contends that the invention of blogs and the internet has diminished the proper
use of the written word. I have to agree. If I read one more Facebook post from one of my many nieces and
nephews with more misspelled words than correctly spelled words, I will scream!!! They say they don't care
because they were just in a hurry but, I am really beginning to wonder!
Thanks for the awesome painting, Shelly!

Tinker - by Cindy Bontempo (GOSHRIN) from Flowers

Tinker - by Cindy Bontempo (GOSHRIN) from Flowers: "Art 'Tinker' - by Cindy Bontempo (GOSHRIN) from Flowers"

I have been a member of EBSQart for years now and I never really found a lot of use for it. I have recently checked it out and was happy with the amount of folk art that I found there. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of crap there too. It looks like someone has posted a lot of child's sketches. I guess there is nothing wrong with that but, it ticks me off.

However, I found this lovely artist from cancer survivor Cindy Bontempo of Wisconsin. She is a delight. I love the contrast of color and black in her work. It really jumps off the canvas. She also has a lot of variety in her work that is nice to see. I really love her florals. If your looking for something new to add to your folk art collection, spend some time in Cindy's gallery this week.
